Scott Treimel’s Blog

At the NJSCBWI Annual conference, Scott mentioned his blog.  I’ve been so busy trying to tie up all the loose ends that I hadn’t had time to check it out until earlier today, when David Caruba called and said I should take a look.  I thought all of you would be interested in what Scott had to say.  See below.

You might want to bookmark his blog, since Scott is very knowledgeable about everything in the children’s book industry.

SCBWI, Query Questions

Scott returns from Jersey today with tales of a fantastic SCBWI conference. Many thanks to all who made it possible, and to the 14 billion (or so) writers who shared their work. What we’re hearing: boy middle-grade is still much in demand. So send us those rough-and-tumble stories.

I received a question today about our exclusivity policy. “Exclusivity” is sometimes confused with “no multiple submissions.” Exclusivity means submitting to us and us alone for a finite period – in our case, thirty days. We ask this because we don’t wish to compete with other agencies for your work. If you’d like us to represent you, we get first dibs. Choose the piece that represents you best, and send that.

As always, I am delighted to answer questions via email (


  1. (laughing) I have bookmarked Scott’s blog. (I check frequently to make sure he hasn’t posted, “Ame is driving me crazy!”)
